Conclusion

The Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 is definitely a pearl of a board, but there are still flaws that need to be worked out. 4-way SLI / CFx, tons of overclocking options and rock stability during the testing really vouch for this board to be Gigabyte’s AMD flagship motherboard. On the other hand, if we look at who this board is aimed at, for a good part it’s the overclockers, then the voltage issues really need to be resolved.

Stay tuned for a Zambezi CPU review, if Gigabyte allows, on this board!
